The Beauty and the Terror

The Italian Renaissance and the Rise of the West

Catherine Fletcher

  • Draws from a wealth of first-hand sources and archival research
  • Presents a new argument for the emergence of the Western world, one that places Italy firmly at its center
  • Features all the major figures of the time, from the artistic geniuses Michelangelo and da Vinci, to the politically prominent (and corrupt) Borgias and Medicis
